    Best Slash Solo Ever ???

    Tough to pick one but this is one of my favourite Slash solos and definitely my favourite GnR song (courtesy of Sophie Burrell):

    It was a heart-in-mouth moment propping her up against the amp for a pic… If only they were more durable beasts lol

    New (to me) Marshall JVM205H… Sounds absolutely glorious through my 212 loaded with Celestion V30s. Had a Marshall SC20H (mini JCM) but moved it on fairly quickly as I struggled to get the gain I wanted from it without a drive pedal. I replaced it with a Boss Katana MkII 100w head but to me it...

    Would You Say These Frets Are In "Good Shape"?

    In no way, shape or form are they in good condition. You may have a case for a refund IMO.

    Real Relics always are better than faux relics.

    Probably some nonsense about “earning the wear” etc…

    when will these near-criminal PRS prices go down?

    I’ve owned a PRS McCarty 594 (the blue one) and a PRS SE 245 (the brown one), both from new. Neither lasted longer than a couple of months. The McCarty was just sterile to my ears and the 245 was just ‘fine’ without offering any excitement. Both solid, well built guitars but lacking any...

    Guitar fail

    Man: “Ok here’s a song” “Fking hell, FCK!” “I keep trying to fkin shut the door because… Grab my guitar please” “Tell me it’s not broke?” Woman is easy enough to understand so I won’t bother with her parts!

    What’s with Fender?

    When shipping thousands upon thousands of guitars a year, a couple are going to slip through the net. The beauty is that you can return it and get another should you encounter a problem. Such a small risk of being slightly inconvenienced is hardly a reason to not buy a new Fender. Ridiculous...

    And it’s great having a guitar that I feel safe leaving around on the floor, sofa etc without worrying about a broken headstock!

    Well, after playing my LP almost exclusively since buying it, giving this Player Strat a go after unboxing it today really felt like coming back “home” after playing Strats from the very beginning. LP is still No1 but this is a fantastic guitar in terms of looks, set up, fit and finish. I’m...

    Fender Player Series 2019 FSR in Shell Pink, due to arrive this week! Bought one of these exact models a couple of years back on Reverb (fitted with Graphtec saddles) and really really really regretted selling it ever since. Best Strat I’ve ever played. Hopefully as they both came from the...

    Is Skid Row not a popular band anymore?

    Great debut album… Youth Gone Wild, 18 and Life, I Remember You are timeless. 2nd album was ok. SB left and then they have just kind of existed since.

    Fender Mod Shop now available in UK and Europe!

    You’re building an Am Pro with a couple of tweaks for an extra few hundred £££. Nah.

    Ok, so this floyd rose 1000 decided to stay in tune 🤷 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    FR1000 are the Floyds that most guitar OEMs use. The fine tuners can feel a little rougher when turned but other than that they are excellent. It’s the FR Specials and Licensed units that don’t have a great rep (although I’ve had a few of each and never had a problem).

    A bit shocked, surprised, and ticked off!

    You do realise that Squier pickups would never be in the Fender factory?
